Back to the Hills

Eyre & Spottiswoode, 1940, illus Lionel Edwards



A collection of stories, this is about the same characters as Back to the Hills. “One of the stories
relates a true incident of the hard winter of 1939-40, and all show the high spirits, true understanding
of horsemanship and witty insight into characters which mark the earlier book.”





Riders of the Hills

Eyre & Spottiswoode, 1939, illus Lionel Edwards


“Riders of the Hills deals with the adventures of a group of children who belong to a West of England
pony club. There are all sorts of children, a couple of boys in the dreamy adolescent stage: the poor
little rich girl who has to eat her lunch in the car with a plate and a fork, instead of on the grass out of
a paper bag: the hard-riding Irish family trying to make both ends meet, the farmer's son who likes to
put on airs : and there are all sorts of adventures - riding in shows, running away to London to go on
the stage, circumventing unpopular neighbours, and all the usual (and some unusual) adventures of
country life.
